The Halcyon Archipelago of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 25.345 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Capitals. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 5,562 trillion Koronas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,482 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Dragonflyball fields, citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, Dhunerin Laurderinthen's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monradhity.

Ko-oren is ranked 2,423rd in the world and 1st in Anaia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.21 percentage of bribes refused.
